Question about 1992 Chevrolet C1500

1992 Chev Silverado C1500 with definite miss while idling

This truck belonged to my deceased father and was well maintained. It has only 110,000 miles on it. While idling, it has a definite miss and runs rough until you reach a high speed of 55 - 60. Then it levels out and runs fine. It does not knock and even drink excessive gas while running. I have replaced spark plugs, plug wires (expensive wires and yes they are all correctly going to the right place). I have replaced the distributor cap. I've had every kind of advice from valve job to timing chain, etc. The last mechanic said it did not have enough miles on it to merit a valve job! Anyone else have this problem? Please help.

    Yes, we checked the timing. I am wondering if the entire distributor is gone?

    I will take it and have the compression checked as I don't have the tool to check the compession. Thanks!

    did you check the compression, a compression test may tell you if there is a problem in one cylinder , do it in two different ways , one with the engine not running , just cranking , remove the coil wire, and next with the engine runnig , the second one will tell you if any valve damaged..

Its not that i' m with the mechanic, but he is right .As you say you have repaired all the possible problem of the car. It is very much important for a certain vehicle to reach its mark or the miles on it to merit a valve. because the strength of the car relays on it. you have road test it again until it reach its miles on to merit a valve.

Is a dodge straight 6 diesel engine with 110,000


Yes, that is a good buy depending on price of course. A Cummins engine can run for 300,000 miles or longer. Generally reach the 500,000 mile mark with no major problems. There is a chance of an injector pump going out if it wasn't maintained well. I would buy it. I hope this helps please rate this and thank you
